"K-State Theatre Shorts: One Act Plays" by Lunchbag Theatre will take place at 7:30 p.m. April 4 and 5 in the Purple Masque Theatre at West Stadium. Admission is free.

This month's "Theatre Shorts" production features one acts, including "God" by Woody Allen and directed by Cole Rockhold, junior in theatre; "How To Be A Good Son" by Julia Cho and directed by Hunter Parker, sophomore in political science and theatre; "Memorial Day" by Murray Schisgal and directed by Jacob Edelman-Dolan, junior in theatre; and "Touch" by Briana Morgan and directed by Trace Campbell, junior in theatre.

Lunchbag Theatre is a means to further develop professional theatre training for beginning directors, designers and actors. Through the semester, they team up to form a small resident company guided by the K-State theatre faculty. This experience allows them to handle casting, staged readings, design meetings, production meetings, scheduling, rehearsals into technical rehearsals and finally, this performance.

The School of Music, Theatre, and Dance is part of the College of Arts and Sciences. The school annually gives more than $500,000 in undergraduate scholarships and graduate scholarships and assistantships. To learn more, visit k-state.edu/mtd.
